My favorite season is autumn. The weather is perfect, there are so many fun outdoor activities going on, and so many opportunities to spend time with friends and family. And of course, there’s tons of amazing fall food! From soups, to pies, to warm crock-pot meals, autumn is definitely all about delicious comfort food.
One of my favorite fall comfort foods is apple pie. Apples are amazing in autumn – they’re at their peak of flavor, and they imitate the autumn weather – crisp and sweet. This autumn, here in Atlanta, a new variety of apples is headed our way. Autumn Glory apples are rich with the fall flavors of sweet caramel and warm cinnamon. They’re perfect for snacking, slicing for a cheese platter, or baking in a warm apple pie. My kids love them too, and while they usually only take a few bites of an apple and leave the rest sitting on the counter, they gobble up entire Autumn Glory apples!
Last week, I managed to save a few Autumn Glory Apples before my kids got to them, and made an easy caramel apple slab pie. I’m a huge fan of caramel apples, and I love finding new ways to incorporate those flavors into dishes. That’s why Autumn Glory apples are perfect to me – they already taste like caramel! The pie was pretty simple to throw together, and baked quickly in the oven. We snacked on the pie all week long, and everyone was fighting over the last piece!
So this autumn, if you’re invited to a party, a family gathering, a play-date, or you’re just in a mood for baking something warm and yummy, try out my delicious Caramel Apple Slab Pie with Autumn Glory apples!

- Yield: 1 slab pie
- Category: Recipes
- 2 packages store-bought refrigerated pie dough
- 6 Autumn Glory Apples (peeled, cored, and sliced thin)
- 1/2 cup flour
- 1 tablespoon cornstarch
- 1/3 cup sugar, plus more for sprinkling on pie
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 2 teaspoons cinnamon
- 1 egg
- 1 jar of caramel sauce
- Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
- Unroll two of the pie crusts and press them into a baking sheet. Cover the entire baking sheet, cutting and pressing together the dough as needed. Press the dough up the sides of the baking sheet.
- In a large bowl, stir together the flour, cornstarch, sugar, salt, and cinnamon.
- Stir the sliced apples into the dry ingredients.
- Pour the apples over the crust in the baking sheet.
- Stack the last two pie crusts on top of each other and roll them out into a rectangle, just large enough to cover all of the apples on the baking sheet.
- Pinch together the edges, cutting off any extra dough.
- Cut a few slits into the pie so it can vent steam while it bakes.
- Beat the egg and brush it all over the top of the pie.
- Sprinkle about a tablespoon or two of extra sugar on top of the egg wash.
- Bake pie for 35-40 minutes, until filling is bubbly and the crust is golden brown.
- (You may want to put an extra baking sheet on the rack below the pie, just in case it bubbles over in the oven.)
- Cool the pie completely before slicing. Top with as much of the caramel sauce as you want, and dig in!
